Ahem, to fuss a bit, the BIOS is a lodestone that comes
with the *PC* architecture.  AMD-processor PC systems are
similarly afflicted; while some Intel-processor systems
(notably Itanium) are not.  Someday we'll even see PC-class
machines without a BIOS.  So the comment about the likelihood
of upgrading the BIOS is undoubtedly true.
